The effect of beta-blockers in treating Japanese heart failure (HF) patients with preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) is unclear. This prospective observational study enrolled 1,682 Japanese HF patients who received carvedilol for the first time. Patients were followed for a mean of 1.6 years. The 1,492 patients with baseline LVEF measurements were allocated to the following groups: reduced EF (LVEF < 40%; n = 724), borderline EF (LVEF 4050%; n = 355), and preserved EF (LVEF… CONTINUE READING
